Two Brooklyn lawmakers say the public should be notified whenever bed bugs are found on trains or buses.

The Daily News reports Councilman Mark Treyger and Assemblyman Bill Colton are drafting legislation that would require the MTA to alert the public within 24 hours of bed bugs being found.

“This concerns the public safety and health of both the transit workers of the MTA and the ridership,” said Treyger.

The MTA has dealt with multiple bed bug incidents this year, most recently on Monday when a conductor on the N line reported being bitten in the cab of the train.

The “Home Rule” bill would also require the MTA to detail the steps it’s taking to get rid of the infestation.
